patronage of the terrorist group hezbollah, its support for syria's bashar assad through the revolutionary guard corps are two of the most troubling, and i would hope that as a follow-through of diplomacy, we might be able to quell some of these activities. and let me acknowledge israel's real well-founded concerns, that a nuclear-armed iran would threaten its very existence. i don't disagree with that. i agree with it, but we're not there yet. while i recognize and share israel's concern, we cannot let israel determine when and where the united states goes to war. by stating that the united states should provide military support to israel in a former resolution should it attack iran, i fear that's how this bill is going to be interpreted. let me conclude, the interim agreement with iran is strong, it is tough and it is realistic. it represents the first significant opportunity to change a three-decade course in iran and an opening to improve one of our most poisonous bilateral relationships. it could open the door to a new future, which not only considers israel's national s

use military force in syria, whether it's to potentially use military force against iran and its nuclear program, how to deal with the chinese and the russians. i have been at this under eight presidents. i bring a perspective and experience that i don't think anybody else has. and frankly, to wait until 2017 makes any contribution that i could make irrelevant and i think what i have in this book, when people do finally read the book now that it's available today, is provide some perspective on these issues and hopefully some guidance. it also lays out how, in a polarized and paralyzed washington, i got things done in terms of canceling programs in the department of defense, in terms of cutting overhead in defense, and how -- and holding people accountable in defense. i would just add, as an after-thought, i hope that the same question will be asked of secretary geithner, pineta, secretary clinton and others, all of whom are writing books that will be published before the end of this president's term gld we programs to ask all of them that question. robert gates, we thank you. >>

want a war, either. if you remember back to the summer and the votes on syria, there was a lot of talk about trying to ramp up military options towards syria. when it came down to possibly putting a vote in front of congress, it was clear the votes weren't there. >> right, but the flipside is if iran continues on this path and it's not verifiable, then israel may act outside of the u.s. not likely, but possible. and/or iran gets a nuclear weapon and it becomes a containment issue. >> that's exactly where i expect it to go. i think the israelis at the end of the day, and i think there are people in the israeli military who understand this very well, will understand that the number of numbers they would have to fly by themselves with refueling over long distances to first suppress sophisticated air defenses and then attack repeatedly hardened targets is beyond the capacity of something as extraordinary as the israeli military force. >> do you think congress acts in the face of the administration saying please don't? >> i expect they will act on this. i expect the president will veto
